Something Different Saturday Box!

Happy Saturday,

Welcome to year two of something different Saturday.  I thought I should kick off the new projects with, what else, a box.  My favourite die of the moment, if you haven't guessed, is the Sue Wilson Californian collection Background die.  I love taking dies and seeing what I can build with them, the joy of this die is that It has no edge so you can make the design as big as you want.

The above shot was made on the beach and although there is a specific reason why I photographed it on the beach you will have to wait until June 24th to find out why!

I am really short on time tonight so let me know if you want more of this one lol

To answer a question from Thursday the sentiment stamp used for Mrs Ducks card is from the sentimentals range form Crafters Companion, click HERE to view the product!



  1. Good Morning, John,
    As you know, words don't often fail me, but today I am lost for the right ones to express my wonder of this box; you truly are an artistic craftsman with such pride
    in every piece you present to us! Magnificent in every single detail!
    The card, too...

  9. Hola John
    Cooooo, what a smashing box. Lovely jubbly but would we expect less? I don't mind the leaves too much on the card either as they look filled in. June 24th? You tease!
    Thank goodness you emptied your gin bottle before photographing!
    Have a great day.
